As we prepare for ARIN Elections to get underway from 31 October through 
8 November, we are pleased to inform the community of a new opportunity 
where you can submit your own questions to be answered by this year’s 
Board of Trustees candidates.

This year, there will be a “Board of Trustees Candidate Forum” held from 
2:30 – 3:00 PM on Thursday, 31 October, during the ARIN 44 Public Policy 
and Members Meeting. During this forum, ARIN Board of Trustees 
candidates will have the opportunity to answer selected questions 
received from the community. That means this is your chance to hear 
straight from the candidates on issues that directly affect you and your 

Do you have a question you’d like our Board candidates to answer? Submit 
your question(s) anonymously using our online form. You may submit as 
many questions as you like:


Submissions will be accepted through 11 October. At that time, ARIN 
staff will compile all questions that meet our Mailing List AUP and 
Standards of Conduct and share them with the community. The community 
will be asked to rank the questions in their order of importance or 
interest. During the forum at ARIN 44, a moderator will select from the 
ranked questions and ask each candidate to answer the selected 
questions. Note that there will be no questions taken from the audience 
– all questions will be chosen in advance, so make sure to submit your 
questions now!

As a reminder, the Initial Slate of Candidates was announced on 23 
September. Before you submit your questions, you may want to review this 
slate to refresh yourself on the Board candidates, their backgrounds, 
and views on issues already covered in the candidate questionnaire:


It is our hope that this forum gives you, the voter, a better 
understanding of where each candidate falls on the issues that matter 
most to you. We believe this will help all of our voters make a more 
informed decision when it comes time to cast their ballots during the 
week of elections, which is such an important time for our community.

If you have any questions about the Board of Trustees Candidate Forum, 
please contact us at members at arin.net. We look forward to receiving your
